all the birds in the sky VIII

There are just two more birds to go. I’ll cover them both today, so next time I can finally show you what my secret felting project looks like (after about an hour of tedious assemblage.)
The last seven birds all were flying, these two are sitting at rest on top of a little branch.

The black bird is a very common bird in Europe and it’s English name is … um … blackbird (or merle). In Germany we say Amsel (or maybe Schwarzdrossel.)

An then there’s the other one. It’s one of the brighter birds, especially in winter around the bird feeders. In German we call it Gimpel or Dompfaff, the English term is bullfinch.

Can you guess what I was working on?
